The facelifted 2016 Holden Captiva has made its official debut in Australia. It’s programmed to go on sale in 2016 and will act as a replacement for the Captiva 5 and the Captiva 7. It’s actually based on the latter and has gained a redesigned front fascia featuring a modified grille and a new look for the headlights that now incorporate the LED daytime running lights. The interior cabin remains very familiar, but Holden has installed its latest MyLink infotainment system featuring a 7-inch screen and with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It comes as standard with a rearview camera and you can go for a five- or seven-seat configuration.
There are plenty of safety and assistance systems to choose from, such as Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Park Assist. Power comes from a 4-cylinder, 2.4-liter gasoline unit with 165 bhp (123 kW) and 169 lb-ft (230 Nm), followed by a stronger V6 3.0-liter with 255 bhp (190 kW) and 212 lb-ft (288 Nm), while a more economical choice would be the 2.2-liter turbodiesel rated at 181 bhp (135 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.
The facelifted 2016 Holden Captiva is scheduled to go on sale in Australia at the beginning of next year.
